COLLEGE/PROFESSIONAL SUMMER INSTITUTES

College/Professional Summer Institutes deliver an experience that goes beyond the traditional classroom. The minimum eligibility requirement for College/Professional Summer Institutes is a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. Additional eligibility requirements vary by program. Please visit the program website for more information.

Most of the programs coincide with the UCLA summer housing periods, and participants in those programs may apply for UCLA on-campus or off-campus housing through UCLA Housing Services. For programs that do not coincide with regular summer housing periods, such as JumpStart and cityLAB, students may consider UCLA Summer Hostel Housing (on-campus) or options such as 613 Gayley (off campus), both of which offer shorter-term housing solutions.

All applicants must agree to the Waiver of Liability (Minor / Adult) and a Program Participant Agreement (Minor / Adult) as part of consideration for allowing participation. Any applicant who is under 18 at the time of submitting this registration form must have a parent/legal guardian complete the Waiver of Liability and the Program Participant Agreement. Note: You will be asked to complete all required documents again whenever adding a new program, switching to another program, or re-enrolling in the same program after cancellation.

NONREFUNDABLE DEPOSIT

Students who register before the program payment deadline (5PM, May 1, PDT), a nonrefundable deposit ($400 for international students; $150 for all others) is required to reserve your space in the program. Please be sure of your intention to register as this deposit is NOT refundable. The nonrefundable deposit is not an additional fee and will apply toward your summer balance within 1 business day.

After the payment deadline (5PM, May 1, PDT), full payment of the program fee is required in order to secure a space in the program. This payment includes the nonrefundable deposit but excludes any applicable miscellaneous fees, such as the Document Fee and Instructional Enhancement Initiative (IEI) Fee, which must be paid on MyUCLA separately, after payment of the program fee.

For programs that require instructor consent to participate, payment will not be accepted until after the application has been reviewed by the program instructor and if or when consent is granted.

Students on a program waitlist will only be prompted to submit payment if a space becomes available for you from the waitlist.

If you are not ready to pay at the time of registration submission, you can retrieve the registration form later to make the required payment. Once a valid payment is made, your registration is considered complete and a space in the program will be reserved for you.

Payment can be made by credit card or electronic check using the secure CASHNet SmartPay system. All credit card transactions made through CASHNet SmartPay are subject to a nonrefundable 2.75% service fee. There is no transaction fee for electronic check payments.

FEES AND PAYMENT DEADLINES

Fees for Summer Institutes vary by program and student status, among other factors. All applicants must review the applicable program website for information on fees, payment and refund policies and procedures.

If registered before the payment deadline, your balance will reflect the nonrefundable deposit. The remaining balance must be paid in full by 5PM, May 1, PDT. After 5PM, May 1 (PDT), applicants are prompted to pay the program fee to register. After registration, students must check the BruinBill account and pay the remaining balance on MyUCLA. Delinquency in payment of other applicable fees may result in enrollment cancellations, holds on academic records, and/or collection actions.

SUMMER SCHOLARS SUPPORT FOR CALIFORNIA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

UCLA Summer Sessions currently does not provide financial aid for out-of-state high school students. Out-of-state students should check with their home institution or private organizations for financial aid opportunities.

FINANCIAL AID FOR COLLEGE/PROFESSIONAL SUMMER INSTITUTES

UCLA financial aid is intended ONLY for eligible UCLA students.

Visiting UC students may apply directly with their home UC campus Financial Aid Office for their participation in UCLA Summer Sessions.

All other students should consult with their home institution for financial aid opportunities.

REFUNDS

Please note that summer offerings are subject to change without prior notice. Changes include, but are not limited to, meeting time and location changes, instructor substitutions, and course/program cancellation. Reasonable efforts will be made to notify students of such changes and to suggest alternatives when applicable. In the event of cancellation, the University is not responsible for any consequential loss or expenses incurred as a result.

Enrolled Students

The following policy applies to all enrolled students, i.e., students who have submitted the required payment for registration.

The nonrefundable deposit may NOT be refunded under ANY circumstances. The remaining balance of all applicable charges excluding the nonrefundable deposit will be reversed if the program is dropped or cancelled before 5PM, June 15, PDT.

No fees are refundable after 5PM, June 15, PDT.

Please refer to your program website and see PROGRAM WITHDRAWAL AND REFUND POLICY under FEES AND PAYMENT for details.

Non-Enrolled Students

Students who are not enrolled, i.e., those who have only submitted the online registration form but have not made the required payment to complete registration, may cancel their online registration form at any time with no financial penalty.
